Security Update for Windows XP (KB2862330) keeps installing repeatedly

Original Title - Windows Update KB2862330
Security Update for Windows XP (KB2862330) keeps installing on my laptop through Microsoft Update and Automatic Update.  After restarting, it shows up again and again and again.  Any idea why and how can I stop it?

I tried downloading the update directly from MS, as suggested. After running the update and restarting the laptop twice, automatic update and Microsoft update still say I need to install the update. That was the only option that seemed to apply to me, so I didn't attempted any of the other possible solutions listed.


I found a possible solution at and allowed the Fix-It utility to run and fix whatever it found. I then went back to Microsoft update, allowed it to re-install the security update, rebooted twice and it seemed to work. I checked Add/Remove Programs and it is installed, so this may be a solution for other people to use.
